26hr photo project: "I love getting to chat with families."
Dr. Keon Ma says: "I love getting to chat with families. It’s always exciting to deliver good news and celebrate with them in the room. But other times you just see stress or fatigue in their eyes. Even when I can’t do something life-changing for them, at their low points, I hope that being present and spending some extra time with them supports them in a small way."

About 26hr photo project: Photographer Rebecca Hay is a resident physician training in Paediatrics in Calgary. "Physicians commonly work shifts up to 26 hours long—often without breaks or sleep, caring for families and vulnerable people. A lot can happen in that time, both beautiful and exhausting. I started the photo project "26hr" to highlight the human aspect of medicine and the incredible people working these shifts, and to explore their stories and perceptions."
